Pleasant dinner

Took my son for dinner on the weekend. Arrived early so we were seated right away. The waiter was nice. We were not in a hurry so didn't mind the wait between courses. Both my son's and my steak were done as asked (rare and medium-rare) and were very good. The caesar salad that came with my... read more

The shine is going off the Keg for us. This is the second experience at a different Keg and the same issues. The menu has changed and there are many items where the side dishes are set and they will not substitute. This particular Keg is always very busy, it took 1 hour and 45 minutes to get a table...

This branch of The Keg is local to me when I'm in Toronto and I have been there a number of times both for drinks and for meals. As far as the food goes, you can't beat it for good value and prompt service, if given by nice young waitresses spilling out of their décolletages much to the men's delight.... More

It seems everytime we have gone there, either His steak is not done as requested or mine.....sure, they'll take it back and then one of us is sitting there waiting for our meal to be returned as the way it was supposed to be in the first place! This has happened several times so we've given up on the place!

Sometimes you just want a good steak and salad. The service at this busy spot was excellent. The bacon wrapped scallops were juicy and hot, the salad enormous and lightly seasoned with a vinaigrette. Simple but delish. The steaks were done to perfection. Thanks for a great night

My husband took me here for a laid back birthday dinner (we made sure not to let the waitress know as we are not fans of public birthday candles with cake) and were seated right away. Our server was fantastic and she was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The steak was exactly as we ordered. The creme brulee was lovely and... More

Went out for a romantic dinner with my hubby and was seated in a horribly dark cold room with only tables with loud obnoxious kids. There was holes in the wall from where a shelf or painting might have been in the past. Complained to management and only received $25 with a letter to please come again. Not sure we... More

A very laid back comfortable relaxing atmosphere to unwind after a long day. Great food, reasonable drink prices and, best of all, not too noise in the lounge area to be able to carry on a conversation. Wonderful modern decor, beautiful Canadian wait staff who were always there when you need/want something without smothering you. A wonderful experience.

My husband and I went there because he had gotten a giftcard for his birthday. We assumed all Kegs would be the same so we decided to go to the one closest to our new home. We were very wrong. We waited to be seated for 5 minutes ( I timed it) not because there was a lineup but because... More

The place looks like out of a Hitchcock film. It's big and on two floors. Busy and noisy even on a Sunday night. Large menu and large portions (for Europeans). Food above standard. Service quick despited a full house.
